The Kinnally collection consists of 16 reels of silent and sound super 8mm and silent 8mm films made and distributed by Chicago filmmaker Tim Kinally. They depict various air shows and re-enactments involving vintage planes and bombers. Included in the collection is a film called Liberators Over Europe: The Crossing of the Rhine March 24, 1945, which appears to be a re-enactment of a wartime crossing of the 44th Bomb Group of the 2nd Air Division of the 8th Airforce and their B-24 Bombers. These air shows take place throughout the United States. Also included in this collection are a number of promotional pamplets and flyers for Timkin Films, located in Tinley Park, and founded by Tim Kinally.
